SL-9000 will not learn the video input select function from the original Kenwood remote. With 5 video sources this is critical... Anyone have any suggestions?

Please help!

Could they be macros or something else odd?

I haven't tried the SL-9000 with a Kenwood 1080VR, but I have attempted to learn the input function from this receiver to other programmable remotes with no success. The input selection process on this reciver is not direct. It scrolls through the inputs as you push the button. When I've tried to learn this on other remotes it will make the first input change, but will not continue after that. I know that's not much help, but maybe someone else has had success with this.

I have a Kenwood and a MX1000. It was tough learning the remote but I figured it out. Say you have three devices that are controlled with the viedo button on the Kenwood remote, Ex VCR1, VCR2, DVD. The way you have to teach the remote is know the sequence. depress the video once you get VCR1 again VCR2 again DVD again back to VCR1. So when you are teaching your learning remote, for ex DVD.Depress the Kenwood remote twice and then on the 3Rd press line it up with your learning remote. I hope this makes sense to you. Good luck!

I was wondering if that might be the answer...

Does the new button on your MX-1000 toggle through all the various Kenwood inputs or just the video inputs? As the 1080/1090 has separate access to the two sets of inputs through the remote, I would hate to have to scroll through all 7 inputs to get back to the input I want.

I will give your suggestion a try and let you know if it works.

I got it!! You nailed it Steve...

I now have direct video source input access through my SL-9000. This should be the key to setting up my planned macros. Also very good info to know for when I upgrade to a Pronto.

Thanks all!

Daniel... GREAT SITE!!!
